Let’s start with the bad of which there are not many, but big enough ones to make me dock some stars. My first and biggest issue with the book was that it seemed to just drag on and on going nowhere. I may very well have missed some important part in the story however I honestly don’t remember reading anywhere explaining why certain events were happening. Big events kept happening and over and over again I wanted to know WHY?!? It was about 2/3 of the way through the book before any information was given and even that was bare minimum. It was very confusing and I was not a fan. Honestly that is my main reason for the rating, and there were a few spelling errors that caught my eye.
Now for the parts that kept me reading. My information issues aside, it was well written and did not jump back and forth. You had no idea what was going on due to lack of information but not because the timeline was jumbled. Another good thing about this book was I did not have to make myself finish it. I was frustrated but it was good enough that I had to finish reading to see if I could get any information.
I would recommend this book, just because some people might actually enjoy it. I did not enjoy it to the point where I will continue the series because at the end I just didn’t care about the why anymore. It is not something that will keep me up at night wondering what is going to happen next. I need some questions answered to continue, not just have a million questions and zero answers. I realize to keep a series going the author can’t tell all the secrets from the beginning but I just didn’t get enough to want to keep reading. By the end of the book I was over the suspense from the beginning and starting to get bored.
On the other hand, if you want a book that slowly builds suspense, revealing bits and pieces of an overall mystery, this book is NOT for you. If you want a book that shows how a person can be changed by her experiences, this book is NOT for you. If you want a book with a credible premise (note I deliberately said "credible" as opposed to "believable" because this is clearly a work of fantasy) then this book is not for you.
Daugherty's writing isn't bad. However, she decided to tell (I think) a one novel tale in multiple novels. The revelations at the end of the book should have taken place in the sixth chapter or so of a much tighter and more cohesive work. To fill in the gaps, there's a whole lot of anguish over who is friends with whom, who can be trusted and who cannot, who I like today and who I don't, and on and on and on and on... In the end, I am simply not interested enough in the overall narrative to slog through another four volumes. Yeesh.
Such a great story, filled with action and adventure, friendship challenges, a pretty heart wrenching love triangle (but reasonably real)... this series had me wrapped up for five days. I've been reading them one after the other and finished Endgame last night. I didn't get much work done and goodness knows it was difficult to put down to go to sleep the other night.
I just really thought the story was fun, DIFFERENT!!! No preternatural activities, no sex (well- not narrated...), no vampires or werewolf societies. the story has typical teen angst against the world theme, and I just loved that it felt similiar (Harry Potter & Vamp Academy-ISH), but different from all the rest at the same time.
Would thoroughly recommend this story and I am going to actively be following this author, they can weave a good yarn!
It would have been a 5 star book for me, however there were some errors in writing and spelling. Other than that this book was a fantastic read!
